Crispy Parmesan Potatoes

What ingredients do you need for these crispy parmesan roasted potatoes?

Potatoes: We are using mini gold potatoes, but any other potatoes work too. I wouldn’t use russet potatoes though! I think a mini to medium sized potato would be perfect.

Melted butter: The melted butter is being tossed with the potatoes, and then also

Grated Parmesan Cheese: Parmesan cheese is tossed in the potato mixture and also layered on the bottom of the baking sheet to crisp up really nicely!

Herbs and seasonings of choice: Such as, garlic powder, onion powder, italian seasoning, oregano, dried or fresh parsley, basil, red pepper flakes, dried thyme, rosemary, paprika, gochugaru and more!

For your dipping sauce: You can serve with any sauce of choice, my go-to is our creme fraiche ranch dressing!

Olive oil, kosher salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions to make these parmesan crusted potatoes

Prep your potatoes

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Wash and dry your potatoes. Cut them in half, lengthwise and score them on both sides to create your cuts. Don’t cut too deep as we want the potato to stay intact.

Season your potatoes

In a large bowl, add your scored potatoes and season with salt, pepper, melted butter, olive oil and seasonings of choice. At this point also add some shredded parmesan as well, toss to combine.

Lay down potatoes on your parmesan mixture

In an oven safe baking dish or baking pan, place your remaining melted butter and mix well with your remaining shredded parmesan to create a paste like consistency. Make sure it’s laid evenly across the bottom of the dish.

Then, cut side down, add your potato mixture one by one in an even layer in the dish.

Bake

Bake and roast until the potatoes are tender and the cheese has not only melted, but has crisped up as well, about 45 minutes-1 hour.

Serve

Scrape off your potatoes and serve in a bowl with your dipping sauce of choice, we are using our creme fraiche ranch! Option to squeeze a little bit of lemon juice and a sprinkle of fresh parsley over it at the end as well!

Tips, Tricks and Substitutions

What can I serve with parmesan crusted potatoes?

Anything will pair really well with these potatoes, especially our Garlic Herb Roast Chicken.

Why aren’t my potatoes getting crispy?

Make sure you have enough room in the baking pan so that it evenly crisps! You also may not be baking it long enough, so keep going until your desired crispiness and doneness.

Do you need to blanch these potatoes ahead of time?

Usually, I would say yes! But here are are using smaller potatoes, and they will need more time to crisp, too, so it’s not necessary to blanch or boil these potatoes ahead of time. This also helps limit a pot, and saves time as well.
